    I am selling an ebook and am afraid of leaks. Is there a tool that gives you a URL and you view the ebook but not allowed to download? And also it makes you login before you allowed to view the material?

    Leaks are inevitable man.
    The best thing you can do is monitor the internet for copyright. Using Copysentry from copyscape is a very good start:
    http://copyscape.com/copysentry.php

    beyond that you should just actively search keywords and see if anyone has taken your idea.

    There are ways to add protection but your ebook WILL get leaked if people really want to share it.
    I am pretty sure that there is pretty sophisticated OCR software out there these days.
    Unless this ebook is revolutionary in some way, then it is probably better to concentrate on sales rather than making the life of your customers difficult.

    It'll get leaked one way or another. If the content is getting leaked and a lot of people are craving for it then that's free marketing for you. Assuming that people are really biting into what you have written then there's a demand for a second book or there's a surge of people wanting to follow you in social media or in blogs or whatever so that actually is a good way to potentially earn more (in the future if you know how to play it right).

    Since it's inevitable that e-books will get leaked, make sure you include plenty of affiliate links inside the book itself.

    I think it's a waste of time worrying about your book being ripped - if someone can read it, they can rip it. The only way to keep it to yourself is, well, to keep it to yourself. But that makes selling it problematic.
    So forget it - and focus instead on sales!

    Nothing is safe on the internet, it will leak at some point. I'd concentrate on sales rather than leaking.

    Hi W130SN,

    Sorry about that. I'm not comfortable putting my full name as my username and I don't think BHW will allow me to change that username, I'll get a mod to delete that account right away. Thanks for letting me know :)

    I wouldn't worry about it being leaked ! Actually the best selling books are the most downloaded one, best performing movies, are also the most seeded and downloaded ones. Check any Torrent website

    If nobody cares to Crack, Upload, Share your Software, book, movie, then it's probably garbage and won't make any money

    Check Top Viewed songs on youtube, and you will find that it belongs to the most selling albums and won a lot of rewards

    Sharing is Free Advertising

    This reminds me of interesting case study I read. Someone wrote a book and sent it for free to his e-mail list ( 3000 Subscriber ) .. You would call him dumb because they should be his best chance to make money, NO

    He told them to read the book and give a review in Amazon, He ended up in the Top-List of Amazon and made 56,000$ in less than 3 Months

    Welcome to the New Marketing :D

    " Some people will see something as a negativity, but the most successful ones will see it as a chance for success"

    - I made up this Quote, feel free to correct the words as I am not the best when it comes to English :p
